  1. Hmm, but shouldn't that also mean they require even more kcal to feel well?  Remember one of the group DID strave, the other did very fine... Not so sure about that.. i seem to remember that several studies comparing different diets (low-carb, low-fat, atkins...) have shown that low-carb often looses more fat and less lean-body mass. However IIRC the results have been somewhat close and yeah, maybe there were design failures or that it can be difficult to keep people on strict diets. But whats that famous saying "requires more studies to be sure".. This also goes along something i
  2. Man.. i have not been active in this forum for quite some time. But i just read this article and simply have to post it here because i'm sure lots of you will find it interesting: http://www.proteinpower.com/drmike/metabolism/is-a-calorie-always-a-calorie/ Dr. Michael Eades argues that a calorie is not always 'a calorie' and mentions two interesting studies: 'The Great Starvation Experiment' which had subjects on a 1500kcal diet (high carb) and they did starve.. and a study by 'Dr John Yudkin' who had subjects on a low-carb (high fat) diet which did restrict themselfs (!) to 1500kcal because t

    Yesterday i finished reading 'Pride and prejudice and zombies' so was reading way more then 15minutes Also have been doing some strength training: Split-squats, Pullups, Bodyrows, Pushups, Dips.. so, more then 15min and at least 5 exercises. Everything challenge related still fine so far. Today i started (about 30min already) a new book: "The sheltering desert".. its about two germans hiding in the namib desert during WWII. Very good ratings at amazon Not sure yet what kind of sport i'll be doing this evening, maybe some running. *edit* Have been doing rope skipping again, i've come home late

  5. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Epiphyseal_plate Its a part of bones that is involved during those bones growing..
  6. Well it seems there are common fears that young people have weaker bones and that it might be possible to damage their epiphyseal plate.. but as far as i understand those fears are more or less nonsense and unwarranted. Sport and activities actually help the body to improve, there are even studies that link sport to small increases of IQ.. I guess your parents simply fear you could get worse grades when doing 'too much' other stuff and use other things as excusses. Maybe it helps to try and strike a deal like 'let me do 30mins per day and if my grades stay the same after a month let me exten
  7. How about stevia leafes? Can't be more natural then that I once had some that should have been used to brew a tea but i found you could also use them to sweeten things up.

    Had to do all of my challenge duties in the morning as i was away the rest of the day for a friends birthday.. Some 20min or so of reading, i'm now at page 399 of pride and prejudice and zombies. Also some 15-17 minutes of ropeskipping.

  10. Laura: Thanks. Its really fun to have equipment at home that can be used for cool and effective bodyweightexercises *edit* OH BTW, it seems the TRX has a single mount point and allows for rotation movements.. the EXF Freetrainer is attached at two points like rings too.. thus rotation will twist the two bands together. But i don't think that a really big deal.
  11. Not sure about the name.. but i sounds like its basicly the same twisting motion as in the russian twist (like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oCB3kxqhbuY) .. just that the upper body it fixed and the legs move while in the russian twist the legs are fixed and the upper body moves. *edit* did it look similar like this? http://www.exrx.net/WeightExercises/Obliques/BWLyingTwist.html Thats the only thing i found in regard to a fixed upper body..

    Thanks! I haven't read the (klingon) original of Pride and Prejudice but really like P&P&Z! However i feel like sometimes the 'bennet girls are great warriors' feels like a little lie in the book.. there seem too many occasion where they don't have a weapon with them when actually i'd expect a warrior to always wear at least a little something of a weapon. Like its only being TOLD they are warriors but not SHOWN so it doesn't feel totally true. Except when they fight, they are the best there are . I think this could have been done better but that might have changed the story much
  13. Still along my goals.. Today i was reading like 40min already during a trainride. I'm now at page 376 of 470. After getting home i did some strength training including chinups (tried and succeeded with a single of 28kg and also several BW chinups after everything else..), dips, pushups, kettlebell-swings and splitsquats. All of which took more then 15min
  14. I've done the same.. looks like this: I really love this feature of the EXF Rings, they are totally easily removable/attachable! Its explained here: http://www.ringtraining.com/blog/exf-straps-part2.html However usually i just move them into position like in the image.. thats enough space inbetween so i don't remove them most of the time too
